"Blind" is a song by American alternative band Lifehouse. The song was released in November 2005 as the second radio single in support of the band's third studio album, Lifehouse. The single failed to make a huge impact at radio, peaking only at #22 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the album's second single, "Blind", was released October 19, 2005. It stars Tina Majorino (most well known as Deb from the MTV film Napoleon Dynamite) and features several other up-and-coming young actors such as Sarch McClain, Stephen Cheung, and Andy Walters.

The video features a teenage goth (played by Tina Majorino), who lives with her neglective father (Kevin Farley) in a house without a mother. She sees her father talking with a lover as she asks "Who is this?", clearly indicating that it is not her mother, but just one of presumably many women her father has had in the house; he responds by throwing her journal & her books as he says, "IT'S MY HOUSE!!!" and pulling her hair. The teenager goes to the small room watching the band perform. She sees her Dad and the woman kissing each other as she sits on the staircase, worrying, and her Dad hands her some money, presumably to bribe her into not telling her Mother. Majorino, now, was seen wearing a white tank top, watching the concert in a big space, singing along to their music. Next, she was seen sitting on the couch, watching TV and writing in her diary, all at the same time. Her father changes the channel as she says, "I was watching something." and grabbing her diary. The girl finally has enough and flees away, packs her things, and goes away. On her way out she sees her Dad kissing another woman, signifying he isn't going to change.
